  1. While I was happy the Marlins made playoffs in 2020, it comes with a mixed bag. The Covid pandemic made it difficult for many of our young prospects to get valuable playing time while some of them were painfully rushed up to fill a roster spot. Now that playoffs have been made, there is the expectation of "load up on free agents" and "spend spend spend". The Marlins can't do that just yet, not when there are so many kids close to the majors that still need to be assessed. I admit, I'd like to see us get some of those big names that are now off the boards, but it's not the Marlins time yet

  2. Best Young rotation, in my opinion ... Cy, Chris, Matt, Irv, and Curt.

  3. We are investing in this team to win now. We past the “rebuilding” stage now it’s building on top of that. Layers upon layers through the ranks. TB has done it, not sure why that’s hard to understand.

  5. MLB Pipeline's Jim Callis was asked if he preferred the future rotations of the Marlins or the Tigers and this was his answer. https://www.mlb.com/news/2021-top-100-prospects-list-pipeline-inbox?t=mlb-pipeline-coverage

  6. Not to mention, they could always try to acquire a closer if they are in contention. Urbina in 2003 for instance.

  8. Bauer isn't worth the insane amounts being thrown around. Let them get stuck with a bad contract.

  10. I agree, and you're definetely the marlinsbaseball.com GOAT at puns, idioms, cliches, riddles, jokes, metaphors, similes, short stories and other wordsmith stuff. I respectfully bow out of this thread's conversation, as it wouldn't be flair fair for me to continue at this conversation, as I have no response to your message. See you at the Craig Mish thread..

  11. Yes. He is still technically a rule 5 pick, regardless of who took him.

  13. It sounds exactly like something Jeter would say. In fact, Jeter probably had to sign off on that statement before it went out. I really hope Anderson has an insane year and it costs the Marlins a ton of money. It’s obvious to many fans that locking him up early is the smart play.

  14. They didn't actually compete last season. It was a short season and everyone made the playoffs.

  15. I thought this for years too. Not sure how a wooden crate that can hold essentially any product and not just soap came to be called a soapbox.

  16. Many people didn't think they could compete last season as well.

  17. I’m not going to play the catch 22 game here. I admire the passion you have but it’s bordline hysteria at times. In life for me, it’s best to see what you have and not look around at what others may have. There you may find some wisdom in it all.

  18. Wether we do or don’t make the postseason, the chances of it will unlikely be because of the closer. Now, if you reach the postseason it’s a difference maker IMO.

  19. Not sure the cost is the issue here. It’s the bulk of players we have that need the roster space to develop. It’s a sifting process. Eventually the layers will peel down to a strong core within our system. Wouldn’t you rather find a treasure hidden in you’re backyard or would you waste resources to find wealth that you may already have?

  20. One more note: 3/5 starters in my hypothetical rotation have had success at the MLB level. Cabrera had success at AA in 2019. Meyer is 22 years old and pitched in college for 3 years. In short, you could also argue that these guys have pretty low floors and high likelihoods of MLB success, given their success at upper levels, polish, and "stuff." That's very promising relative to, say, a bunch of high-ceiling guys in A ball.

  21. Rogers really impressed me last season. The amount of swing and misses he got with the fastball was shocking. That fastball/slider combo reminded me of a left handed Josh Johnson. Guys just couldn’t pick it up. How much he improves his command and changeup/cutter will ultimately define his ceiling. Definitely glad he’s in our system edit: adding some #’s just to put this in perspective Whiff % on Fastballs Rogers (2020): 29.7% Sale (2019): 28.5% Snell (2019): 27.2%

  23. I would love more evidence of Brian having a problem with what she said. Even if it has truth behind it that doesn't suddenly mean that BA is disgruntled and wouldn't sign an extension so gotta take all of this with a grain of salt. Did she say anything wrong? Not at all. Could she have worded it differently? Possibly. With that said, it was clear what she meant and if BA and his camp had a problem with what she said then maybe they need thicker skin.

  25. I'm pretty sure all of our hitting prospects are male. Maybe we have some they/them folks I didn't know about?

  26. I don't believe anyone feels that Yams was the last straw...im 2 for 2 for the failed sarcasm this week. I think most people thought it was a risk to trade Yelich, who was universally liked on this forum and praised for his talent by teams throughout mlb. And it is hard to pick a moment...but id say the fan base then started holding their collective breath when Brinson started batting .199...which bled fear into the other trades...

  27. Christian Yelich was very vocal about wanting out of Miami... he was not an MVP caliber player at the time... other teams did not have much interest in him... the Brewers proposed what was the best return at the time... the return was praised at the time considering Yelich was not an MVP yet... the return included multiple Top 100 prospects at the time of the deal... on the day the trade happened the Marlins were praised for getting multiple top prospects for a "good but not great" disgruntled player who other teams weren't very interested in. Did it work out for the Marlins? It did not.

  28. I dunno... Dream Baseball: Walking up to home plate and realizing you forgot to put on a pair of pants. Fantasy Baseball: Walking up to home plate and placing a protection spell on yourself because there's a literal dragon pitching. I prefer Fantasy! But Science Fiction Baseball wouldn't be bad either.

  29. Fair point. But I do have to ask, how is it that you write for websites that don't exist?
